Paper Airplane: the Nakamura Lock





Introduction: Paper Airplane: the Nakamura Lock

This is one of the best paper airplanes that I've ever made. It is moderately simple to fold and a very good flier. It is a gentle glider with a "flat" front so if it ever crashes the front won't crinkle up like it would on a airplane with a pointy tip. TIP: If you ever have a Nerf war, you can put a Nerf velcro dart in The Nakamura Lock and throw it at someone. This is very fun.

You like? Well let's get foldin'.

Step 1: What You'll Need

This step shows you what you need. A sheet of paper, a pen or pencil, and a ruler. USE A RULER! I DON'T HAVE ONE.

Step 2: Body

Time to fold up the body of the airplane. This is the hardest step. READ ALL NOTES!!!!!

Step 3: Final Folds

Time to finish up the plane. Again, READ ALL NOTES!!!!!!

Step 4: You're Done!!!

Yay, you finnished an awesome paper airplane. Not much to say here, so, go throw it around!

Great Job! I myself am an engineer and seeing you explain something so simple that works is most impressive!

ah,can I ask why the finishing picture has a dog on it?

Hoorai i didz it it fliez really whel.

Just made it. Flies very smoothly.

There's a secret to making that particular plane fly better.  I'll let you look around for it. 

I think I know it. You fold up the back of the wings so they're almost straight up.
